PHOENIX -- Students at Sierra Linda High School held a surprise Send-Off Rally Wednesday for their athletic director who is being deployed overseas.
Dr. John Renouard is a high ranking Lt. Colonel that has served the country for many years, and recently got word that he will be deployed to the Middle East.
Dr. Renouard has been on the Sierra Linda High Administrative Team since the school's opening in 2009 and worked as an educator in the district prior to that. He is currently the athletic director and oversees student activities as well.
The students put on the assembly to honor Dr. Renouard's service to the school and the country.
